How To Address A Wedding Invitation To A PhD
Using proper wedding address etiquette, VideoJug shows you how to address a wedding invitation to a PhD appropriately.
Step 1: You Will Need
- Your wedding guest list with addresses
- A second name and address list with the proper wording
- A calligrapher or business which does machine calligraphy
Step 2: Determine The Status Of Your Guest
What is the status of your guest? Is he married, a medical doctor? Does he have a PhD? It is essential you know the answers to these questions.
Step 3: Determine The Outer Envelope Address
OK, he's not married and he has a PhD. On the outer envelope, that's the one the postman will see, you will address it to "Dr.", his first name, and his last name.
And remember, no matter how nicely addressed and pretty the invitation is, it will not get there if you send it to the wrong address…so always make sure you have the right address!
Step 4: Determine The Inner Envelope Address
Now it's time to address the inner envelope which holds the actual wedding invitation. You would address it "Dr." and his last name.
Step 5: Take The List To Your Calligrapher To Print
When you have finished with your address list all you have left to do is give it to your calligrapher to address the envelopes.
If the cost of hand calligraphy is an issue, keep in mind that many stationery shops offer machine calligraphy which looks very similar to hand calligraphy, but costs much less.
